Year 3 are going to have a great year as we have lots of lovely topics to look forward to. We will be having a big focus on developing our independence alongside our thinking and learning skills.
Both myself and Mrs Douglas, who helps us in class in the mornings, are looking forward to teaching and having fun with Year 3. I especially enjoy our Go Noodle dancing!
We have already enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th anniversary by writing our own versions of The Enormous Crocodile, replacing the main character with one of our own. We also drew some pictures of his different characters in a Quentin Blake style.
This term’s topic is The Savage Stone Age and we have begun by starting to develop a dance in PE where we are hunter-gatherers. In Art, we have made some draft sketches ready to create our own cave paintings. We have just started reading Stone Age Boy in English and will be using drama, debate and role play to help us write our own exciting Stone Age adventure story.
In Maths, we are revisiting place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, shape and data handling.
Mrs Corfield is teaching us all about rocks this term and Mrs Alexander will be teaching us French and R.E.
Homework will go out on Friday and be due back on Wednesday. There will be a different focus each week: Reading Comprehension, Writing or Maths.
PE will be on Monday and Thursday.
I like to encourage the children to drink plenty of water and we are currently trialling water bottles on desks to make for easier access and less time out of class so please do send a water bottle in with your child.
